WHAT IS TUDCA?
TUDCA (Tauroursodeoxycholic acid) is a bile salt that is found naturally in the body. When normal bile salts reach the intestines, they can be metabolised by bacteria and bound to a taurine molecule to become TUDCA.
BENEFITS OF TUDCA
TUDCA is known to help Cholestasis, which is a bile acid back-up in the liver. It competes with the toxicity and protects the cells from dying. As an endogenous bile acid, TUDCA encourages natural bile flow and inhibits the formation of toxic steroid metabolites – the stuff that causes bile blockage in the first place.
That is why TUDCA is a favourite supplement among athletes, because steroids are infamous for inhibiting the production and flow of bile from the liver. This effect is known as cholestasis. Build up of high toxic levels in the liver from toxic steroid metabolites can lead to cell damage and even death.
And when it comes to cholestasis, your liver isn’t the only vital organ placed at risk. Oral steroid use causes elevated LDL (bad cholesterol) and decreased HDL (good cholesterol). This dangerous combo leads to an increased risk of heart disease. That’s why liver health protection and maintenance is so important.
Livers that have been harmed by excessive amounts of alcohol can be treated with TUDCA
TUDCA also helps with blood glucose and insulin sensitivity, it has been shown to improve insulin signalling in the liver and muscle tissue, which is would be good for people with diabetes.
TUDCA has also shown to aid in fat loss and help neutralise weight in both males and females.
TUDCA may also support eye health, neuron health, insulin sensitivity, detoxifying your body, and even reduces stress levels.
May promote healthy liver function.
May reverse the toxic effects of metabolites in the liver.
May eliminate metabolites from the liver more readily.
May encourage healthy cholesterol levels.
